During a visit from the management of Chevron Nigeria Limited led by its Chairman and Managing Director, Mr. Jeffrey Ewing, he said, "We hope to also open the Ajah Flyover before the end of May.”

Work commenced on the flyover after the governor confirmed the rumors in a series of tweets.

The opening of the Ajah flyover should free up the road from the terrible traffic that this area is known for.

Do you agree that this flyover will decongest the traffic in Ajah?»
